    1. Love your word to describe this flower: “exquisite.” I was blown away by its color and growth. It was growing tall, full, and lush. Its interconnected branches made the flowers grow over a large area. Maybe you will see these flowers where you live once the stormy weather passes.

      1. I do think they are exquisite looking – the contrast in color … at first I thought they were cardinal flowers from a cardinal vine. I saw a hummingbird today and just buzzing around outside the door – have never seen one before! It made my day!

      2. How in the world do you know all these flower names?! As I’m finding new flowers, it’s challenging me to learn their formal names.
        Hummingbirds are beautiful birds! Do you know they lay the smallest eggs? I learned that through my kid’s science video. They flap their wings 70 times per second. Amazing!

      3. I have been learning all about hummingbirds since I got the hummingbird feeder and I finally have a diner as of this morning. He was on the pretty flowering weed last week, so decided I’d get a hummingbird feeder. I did know some facts about hummingbirds before – their eggs are the size of Tic-Tac mints, and they have the fastest metabolism of any animal or bird and they only weigh as much as one thin dime. I watch the hummingbirds sometimes here – this is a great site for adults and kids Esther: https://explore.org/livecams
        There’s a great selection there for almost every animal or bird. Here is one of several hummingbird web-cams:

      4. I wonder if this new diner will be a frequent visitor! They are beautiful little birds with amazing features. I knew their eggs were small but not the size of a tic tac. Tiny but magnificent creatures.
        Taking a picture of them is hard unless your camera ready. Once it’s spotted and you get the camera ready, they’ve moved onto another flower bush.
        Thanks for sharing the sites! I’ll check them out.

    1. Aren’t they gorgeous?! The colors are super saturated and bright.
      Thank you for your comment and I’m glad you like the new theme. The theme change was partly influenced by you when you were going to change to the dragonfly theme. Thanks!
